    FXStreet (Mumbai) - The GBP/USD pair picked-up pace from the 200-DMA support located near 1.5344 and swung back higher to reach fresh session highs.

    GBP/USD rises from hourly 200-SMA

    The GBP/USD pair drops 0.78% to 1.5370, hovering near fresh session highs posted at 1.5374 some minutes ago. The major found renewed strength and attempts another run to break above the strong resistance zone at 1.5375-1.5390 levels.

    Markets continue to digest the latest UK jobs report while extending the recovery towards 1.54 handle after Tuesday’s CPI-led slump. While repositioning ahead of the crucial US data also partly contributed to the rally in the cable.

    Looking ahead, the major will be influenced by the sentiment on the US stocks while the US advance retail sales and PPI data are expected to remain the main drivers in markets.
